Uzbekistan U23 is the defending champion, however, they have encountered many difficulties in this year's tournament.

The opportunity to attend the 2020 Olympic Games is still available for Uzbekistan U23 as they still have a third-place match against Australia U23. If Ljubinko Drulović's team passes the opponent, they will win tickets to the 2020 Olympic Games together with the two teams participating in the final (South Korea U23, Saudi Arabia U23) and host Japan U23.

Meanwhile, Australia U23 has the same goal as U23 Uzbekistan after being eliminated in the semi-finals. In fact, the kangaroo team made a strong impression in this tournament. Even so, Australia U23 only surpassed rivals Syria U23 in extra time of the quarterfinal match. In the semi-finals, Graham Arnold's team met an extremely strong opponent, South Korea U23 and received a defeat of 0-2.
